If you enter Washington National Cathedral at the main entrance, the Space Window is located along the south aisle.  The Space Window is a visual celebration of human scientific discoveries.  The glass window depicts a dark sky with stars and planets and was created to commemorate space travel.   At the center of the large red circle is a piece of lunar rock.  The rock was brought back by Apollo 11 and was given as a gift to the National Cathedral.  You can see the map of the cathedral and a picture of the Space Window at this site http://www.nationalcathedral.org/pdfs/families.pdf
